There are many older translations of the bible that are now in the public domain - eg the "American Standard Version" of 1901. I'm not aware off-hand of any very "literal" transations; they tend not to be very readable because the grammatical structure of Hebrew is so radically different from that of English. You have to "paraphrase" to get readable English.

I'm sure you're aware of this, but only the Old Testament was originally written in Hebrew; the New Testament was written in Greek.
